By Alandjames

I am a friend or relative of resident

My mother lives at The Waterford. I would give it 5 stars but the 5th star wont let me click on it. The staff is wonderful, the food is great, residents are friendly. They go over and above in everything to make sure great for her and for all the residents. You owe it to yourself and to your family to check out The Waterford before going anywhere else. You become part of a family and part of a community when you move here. I cant recommend it highly enough! We have been beyond pleased!

Describe the overall population of independent living residents at The Waterford on Highland Colony. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

Our residents include men and women ranging in age from 62 to 98! The average age is around 80. It is truly a family atmosphere here, where our residents care for each other and enjoy each other's company. They enjoy playing Bingo, Pokeno, Bridge, Canasta, dominoes and many other games. Some garden around the exterior of our building and enjoy the woods which surround us on 3 sides and the lovely lake that sits in front of our building. Many still drive and keep their cars in our spacious parking lot. For those who don't still drive, we offer courtesy transportation M-F. Everyone loves the delicious food our chef serves daily.

The city of Ridgeland police department does a wonderful job of keeping a watchful eye on our property.
